I discovered A Luz Ideal while passing by with a car. I remembered I looked through the window and noticed this beautiful small coffee bar on the corner and thought I need to come to visit.
Since I went there first time, I kept going and it turned into one of my favourite places .. one of those spots you come in and you are welcomed with a big smile.

Everything begun while Teresa, owner who lives in the neighbourhood, was sitting on the bus station across where A Luz Ideal is now and realized a shop that was there at the time was closed. Idea came in and she tried to find out who is the owner of place.
Together with Pedro, her husband who is architect, and few more friends, she made project, presented it to the owner of place and they were accepted…
When they found out it’s approved they panicked. No experience in a field, with new project in hands they didn’t know where to start .

But story has a happy-end, they opened a beautiful space which is visited by people from neighbourhood and also by tourists and those, like me, who go there on purpose. Food and pastries made by Teresa, good coffee and great light and atmosphere , I can’t ask for more ..
